Accessing an item in ODBC listview

Recommended Posts



I am fairly new to AutoIT. I am trying to change a setting in the ODBC Data Source Administrator - Connection Pooling tab. The ListView shows multiple drivers. I have 2 problems and 1 question:

1. I am unable to choose the driver I want by name because ControlListView "findtext" always returns -1. "gettext" returns nothing for any selected item. ("getitemcount" says there are 23 items.)

2. If I choose a specific item (say 2), I cannot activate the Connection Pooling Attributes dialog. The closest I've come is sending a double-click to the ListView control, but it is activating for a different driver than the one I have selected.

3. Is there a way to specify a tab in a TabControl by name? I am sending key strokes to hopefully get the correct tab.

Thank you,

Pretty much everything the ODBC manager does just manipulates some registry keys at HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI (for drivers), HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI (for DSNs), etc. Browse through there and find out how to do what you want with just RegRead()/RegWrite() functions.
